Vacationland - Spring 1961

Let's take a look at a vintage Vacationland Magazine. This is the oldest un-posted Vacationland in my collection, this issue is the Spring 1961 edition.   

You can download the entire issue here:  

There is some super artwork in this issue.

Nice castle colors!

Colorful centerfold.

There was quite a bit of "News from Disneyland" in the Spring of 1961, three pages worth!

I first saw this cover many years ago, and it might have been the first time I really noticed the round buckets. Love the Dolly Madison ad!

Always great to have another Vacationland, especially an early one. I also like how some of the ideas don't quite make it into production such as showing all four seasons in Nature's Wonderland. It's too bad they didn't reproduce that art in color even if it is a snow-blanketed scene.
